Windows 7: Command Center wants to make changes to my computer, can't click no

Before you replied I decided to close herdprotect and rescan but I did not restart my computer, do I need to? The scan I did is finished with the same results as the last.

Also, if the message really is from the alienware command center, do you have any idea why it would be so persistent about making changes to my computer?

It might be trying to update and is failing. You could try downloading the newest version if you wish to keep it. But uninstalling manufacturer bloat will increase performance.

This might be helpful:

I don't suggest messing with the registry part, but the link above lets you download the newest version.

Thanks, I have not removed anything with herdprotect yet. In my screenshot I don't know why it said it was removing setup.exe because all I did was click on the details and cancel the window showing the details.

The Alienware Command Center changes the color of my computer and changes startup settings or power settings. I had no idea that Command Center and Alienware Command Center were the same program. I don't know why I didn't think of this before, but the reason command center wants to make changes to my computer is because it wants to but into action the startup settings I have saved in Alienware Command Center. This however, doesn't fix all of my problems because I still suspect malware or spyware is on my computer.

No problem. Post a new herdprotect log so I can verify those other adware are gone.
After doing so, we can check your pc with herdprotect.

What other problems are you having?


I would like you to scan with Hitman Pro.

1.) Download hitman pro here for your windows version and install it.

2.) Open hitman pro. Click next.



Read and Accept the license agreement, then checkmark the box and click next.



Choose to only run a one time with this computer and click next



The scan will start, wait until it completes, then click the save log button.



Choose a place to save it for upload later



Close out of hitman pro.

Find the log file wherever you saved it and upload it using the paperclip

The problems that make me still suspect malware:

The little blue spinning circle that goes next to your mouse when something is loading often shows then goes away after a second.

My internet connection is usually at 1 to 3 bars and often changes quickly. All other computers in my house have full connection bars all of the time.

Shutdown sometimes takes over 20 minutes and still doesnt shutdown until either I press the power button or the computer bluescreens

Randomly my computer's fan starts working very hard even though I'm not doing anything tasking.

Thanks for the log. You look good there. Hitman pro is still being waited on. If you are still having issues with google chrome saving/downloading items, do the following:

Visit this site and reset google chrome:

Really? Not like I really understand much of that log, but when it supposedly detected false positives isn't it possible for viruses to really be there and have themselves detected like that on purpose?

Doing the hitman scan right now.

Yes it is. Which is why we are running multiple scanners to ease your worry.
